The members of a north-east pipe band are preparing to hit new heights by playing at the top of Bennachie for charity.
Kintore Pipe Band will perform on Mither Tap as part of the Bennachie Bosie, a charity walk organised by conservation society the Bailies of Bennachie.
They will join walkers, who will be holding hands around the distinctive peak after reaching the summit.
Pipe Major Claire Napier said: “It is going to be a challenge getting our equipment to the top – and being fit enough to play when we get there.
“It is such an unusual thing to do. Many members of the band are keen to take part.”
The band has 25 pipers and 10 drummers – aged 12 to 80 – who play at events around the north-east throughout the summer.
Outreach officer for the Bailies of Bennachie, Fiona Cormack, said: “We are delighted at the enthusiasm of the Kintore Pipe Band about taking part in this event.
“Having a musical backdrop to the Bosie will add to the atmosphere hugely.”
The walk will take place on Sunday June 23, beginning at Bennachie car park near Oyne and progressing to the peak of Mither Tap, where walkers will link hands at noon.
The event is raising money for Breast Cancer Care, the University of Aberdeen Development Trust and Aberdeen Mountain Rescue Team.
